The Federal University of Technology, Minna, says it will go ahead with the 2017/2018 Post-UTME screening despite the ongoing strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Non-Academic Staff of the University. 

The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Prof. Oluwole Morenikeji disclosed this a statement signed by Mrs Lydia Legbo, the Institution’s Public Relations Officer. Morenikeji, also Chairman University Pre-Admission Screening Exercise (UPASE), said that the institution has concluded all logistical arrangements needed to conduct another hitch-free screening.

He expressed optimism that the ongoing strike action would not affect the exercise since the Post UTME candidates are not yet bonifide students of the University. He said that the University would employ the services of corps members who are serving in the institution to conduct the exercise and other people who have agreed to assist the University during the exercise.

He explained that since the examination is computer based, there would be no need for many invigilators.

”Those who are willing to assist us to conduct the exercise will be contracted and they will be paid for the job. So, I do not see any problem why the screening will not hold as scheduled. We expecting 10, 000 candidates for the exercise and that over 7, 000 candidates have concluded their registrations as at Wednesday, September 13, 2017″

On the facilities on ground for the exercise, the University has increased the number of computers at the Electronic Test Centre from 400 computers to 800 computers so that the exercise would only take four batches per day instead of eight batches that was used last year. The Post-UTME exercise will commence from Monday (18/09/2017) and end on Friday (22/09/2017) for all UTME First Choice candidates.
